Nicholas, known for playing the Chatterer Cenobite in Clive Barker’s Hellraiser film; has dramatised two stories from his collection, â€˜What Monsters Doâ€™, which is rated 5Â stars on amazon.com. He is working closely with Hidden Basement Productions to bringÂ them to the stage.
The show, “What Monsters Do”, consists of two 25 minute horror plays performed as a double bill. The stories, â€˜Tunes from the Music Hallâ€™ and â€˜Green Eyesâ€™ explore love, lust, obsession, the bond of family and the dark violence that lurks behind seemingly innocentÂ people. Nicholas said, “The plays centre on the theme: it is not our flesh, but our actsÂ which make us monsters.”
Directing the plays will be Philip North, co-writer and director of ‘The Puppetry of Flesh’,Â which sold out at last year’s London Horror Festival. He said, ‘I’m thrilled that a horrorÂ icon like Nick has chosen to work with Hidden Basement to bring his dark stories toÂ life. It’s great to have such rich source material for a project. I think the piece is reallyÂ unique and a must see for all fans of horror. I’m looking forward to unleashing these twoÂ disturbing tales on London audiences.’
â€˜What Monsters Doâ€™ is on at the Etcetera Theatre, Camden at 7:30pm,Â 25th-27th October 2013 as part of the London Horror Festival.
